Euro 2020: UEFA begins disciplinary proceedings against England FA over fan behaviour at Euro final: UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against England’s Football Association for the behaviour of fans during the European Championship final last month, European soccer’s governing body said on Monday.

The final, won by Italy in a penalty shootout, was marred by clashes between supporters and officials in and around Wembley Stadium, with several ticketless fans breaching security cordons.

Euro 2020: UEFA opened a disciplinary investigation two days after the final and the FA was hit with four charges for invasion of the field of play by supporters, throwing of objects, disturbance caused during the national anthem and the lighting of fireworks.

The FA was also fined 30,000 euros ($35,595) for crowd problems after a laser pointer was shone at Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel during England’s semi-final win, also at Wembley.
